What do you do when your family is in town?
Besides ruin family photos for your mother? You head to the Salvation Army. Of course.
I had previously placed a self-imposed Salvation Army ban on myself. I kept buying junk and not doing anything with it. After a month, I lifted this ban.
Good thing. Look what I found…
No, this is not junk. This is beautifulness.
I have had my eye on this type of sled but they usually go for ~$50 in antique stores. $8.50 at the Salvation Army Outlet. Score. I made my poor brother carry it around the entire store because I couldn’t risk losing it. My family always hopes that I find large items at the end. I don’t get it. I’m not exactly sure what I am going to do with it yet but it will somehow make it into my Christmas decorating. I’m pumped.
I also found these…
I like old books. Old book can be expensive. I don’t like to pay more than $0.75 for them. I usually go for books that look pretty but I actually found some interesting titles on this stop. The Complete Book of Furniture Repair and Refinishing could be useful. And who couldn’t use a good brushing up on general hygiene?
Not the girl that hadn’t showered for 2 days.
Anyone else bond with their family at their favorite thrift store? Anyone finding any good bargains out there? Who wants to borrow my hygiene book?
